AALRR’s Southern California Education Law Practice Group Welcomes Anthony Ramos as Partner
Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (AALRR) is pleased to announce that Anthony Ramos has joined the firm as a partner in its Southern California Education Law practice group. Mr. Ramos will be based out of our Pasadena office.
Prior to joining AALRR, Mr. Ramos served as General Counsel to the Ventura Unified School District for 17 years. He has more than 21 years of experience representing school districts and public entities and has been practicing law for more than 27 years. Mr. Ramos noted that he chose AALRR because of its experience and reputation for providing top quality legal services to educational institutions and public agencies.
Mr. Ramos advises and represents educational institutions in matters involving governance, the Public Records Act, conflicts of interest, First Amendment issues, student search and seizure, student discipline, and student privacy/student records, among others. He also provides training sessions to staff and board members in topics such as mandated reporter training, the Brown Act, conflicts of interest, student search and seizure, student data privacy, sexual harassment.
Tony De Marco, chair of the firm’s Southern California Education Law practice group, said, “Anthony Ramos is exactly the type of attorney with which AALRR is proud to associate. He has incredible legal and real world experience that will be invaluable to our clients. He has a stellar reputation in the education community, the Central Coast, and statewide. With AALRR’s platform, the sky is the limit for Anthony, and we will provide him with every resource to be successful.”
Mr. Ramos joins AALRR as one of many former in-house general counsel who felt the transition into private practice was a strategic move for their professional growth, including Mark Bresee (San Diego USD), Kathryn Meola (California School Boards Association), Ron Wenkart (Orange County Department of Education), and Matthew Besmer (State Center Community College District), just to name a few.
